One of the biggest hits of 2007, BioShock, is now receiving a big brother (sequel). Creators of the smash hit Take-Two Interactive, today confirmed BioShock 2 is currently in development.
Also in the announcement, Take-Two took the opportunity to release sales figures for the original BioShock. More than 2 million copies of the game were sold, not quite Halo3 level, but pretty good for the first title in what is sure to be a series of releases and a very profitable franchise.
I know the end of 2009 is still a decent time away, but I’m super excited about this announcement. Bio Shock is a game that changed what it meant to architect the visual styling of a gaming. I can’t say I’ve ever spent so long in a game, just stopping and looking around at the environments which were simply stunning.
